Chesapeake bridge tunnel

We are about an hour off the tunnel (11:52)AM. Ready for a shower. It has been a pretty good trip with good winds, little wind from every direction but not all at once. Tide is now against us as is the 5kn breeze so it is powering as it has been for the last 24 hours. The first 24 were almost all sailing with no motoring at all. No rain. No temperatures below 60 but still layered and a little nippy. 2 hours on...2 off except 10 to 2 and 2 to 6 at night so we could get a longer sleep.

Finally, on our way south again!

Oct 17, Sunday morning @ 9:30 Harmony finally got out to sea. Terry Parker went with Lew. Terry's wife Claude and I saw them off at the dock. They will go straight through to Norfolk, rent a car and come back to Keyport. Lew & I will drive back down with whatever still needs to go on board. Then our winter starts.

On our way

Yes folks we are on our way. Left the mooring at 9:30 . 10 knots from the west. Round Sandy Hook in another half hour then south for Norfolk.

Yes we are almost ready. However, the weather is not cooperating. The forecasts are calling for 14 foot waves on the nose to get over the Chesapeake Bay Tunnel on Friday.
